Antiques Roadshow "Bishop's Palace 2" 14 August 2022: Sunday on BBC One 11

Antiques Roadshow returns to one of the smallest cities in England – Wells in Somerset – where the Bishop’s Palace hosts Fiona and the team.

Elaine Binning hears the story of a gymnast who competed in the 1928 Olympics, the first time the games admitted female gymnastic competitors. Rupert Maas examines a piece of street art on a metal panel by the artist Bambi, while Eric Knowles admires a broken plate by the Victorian designer Augustus Pugin and is impressed that its owner even has a tattoo in the Pugin style.

Marc Allum is moved by the story of an American ‘resonator’ blues guitar, left behind in England by a soldier who never returned from the D-Day landings, while Geoffrey Munn challenges Fiona Bruce to put three pieces of stunning Fabergé jewellery in order of value.

Fiona also chats with furniture specialist Lennox Cato about his life in antiques, hearing how he was adopted as a child into a family of antiques dealers.

About Antiques Roadshow

Airing since 1979, this popular programme that has spawned multiple international versions travels across Britain (with occasional trips to other countries, such as Canada and Australia), bringing together in each location specialists in antiques and fine arts to have them appraise items brought in by local residents, whether they are collectors looking to turn trash into treasure or ordinary folks hoping Grandma’s old painting might now fund the kids’ education. Items featured on the programme often have an interesting story attached to them or have some connection to that episode’s venue. While some items that are brought in are worth a fortune, others are worthless.

This show is broadcast on BBC, also known as the British Broadcasting Corporation.
